Ted Donlan joins EC

November 16, 2021 / PSU-AAUP

We would like to welcome Ted Donlan, Associate Professor, School of Social Work, as our newest Executive Council member. Yasmeen Hanoosh withdrew from the election prior to the ballot closing, and so there are no election results to report. Ted is returning to the AAUP Executive Council after a hiatus of several years, and we are happy to have his experience back on the team. 

If you missed it on the ballot, here’s some background on Ted:

I arrived at PSU in 2006, and I am a tenured Associate Professor in the School of Social Work. I began my service as a unit representative, and in 2013-2014 I collaborated in a year-long effort with union colleagues in organizing for a successful strike vote in 2014, which forced PSU administration to return to the bargaining table with a reasonable offer. I never forget that struggle, which clearly demonstrated the strength of our union. During my previous service on our Executive Council, I witnessed how important our union is when members’ collective bargaining agreement (CBA) rights are violated, which is why I began serving on our Grievance Committee. During this time of proposed budget cuts, we need to be vigilant that PSU administration adheres to all the protections our CBA provides. If elected, I will make every effort to ensure that the rights of all our members are upheld.
